Heinrich Brüning Flees Germany to Holland Hot

Heinrich Brüning, former leader of the now-dissolved Catholic Center Party, flees across the border to Holland with nothing more than what he can carry in a suitcase.

Brüning flees like this because he has been tipped off by a friend that he's been marked for death in Hitler's Night of the Long Knives, a purge that takes place at the end of June.

After the war, Brüning will help develop the Christian Democratic Party.
